Clive Barker Penning Script for Hellraiser Remake! The Scarlet Gospels Picked Up for Print!HUGE breaking news, kids! Any day we get to squeeze several massive updates about Clive Barker in one story is a fine, fine day! The headline says it all; read on for details!

From Clive Barker on Facebook
HOT FROM HELL! My friends, I have some news which may be of interest to you. A few weeks ago I had a very productive meeting with Bob Weinstein of Dimension Pictures, in the course of which I pitched a remake of the first HELLRAISER film. The idea of my coming back to the original film and telling the story with a fresh intensity-honoring the structure and the designs from the first incarnation but hopefully creating an even darker and richer film-was attractive to Dimension.

Today I have officially been invited to write the script based upon that pitch. What can I tell you about it? Well, it will not be a film awash with CGI. I remain as passionate about the power of practical make-up effects as I was when I wrote and directed the first HELLRAISER. Of course the best make-up in the world loses force if not inhabited by a first-rate actor. I told the Dimension team that in my opinion there could never be a Pinhead without Doug Bradley, and much to my delight Bob Weinstein agreed. So once the papers are signed, I will open a Lemarchand Configuration, dip my quill in its contents and start writing. I promise that there will be nowhere on the Internet where the news of my progress will be more reliable than here, because the only author of these reports will be Your Infernal Corespondent, me. My very best wishes to you all, my friends.

If that’s not enough to send you spinning out of control, how’s this little tidbit from Clive’s official site?

Clive is delighted to announce that St Martin’s Press has acquired world English rights to publish The Scarlet Gospels, his upcoming novel featuring Pinhead and Harry D’Amour. St Martin’s anticipates a winter 2015 publication date – more from Clive soon!

    If there ever was a Horror franchise that deserved a cleansing from all those bad direct to video sequels it’s Hellraiser. I still rember seeing 1 & 2 at the Drive in and being totally blown away . There is alot of source material with the books & comics PINHEAD is badass cant wait to see him and his cenobite posse tear souls apart proper!!!

    Yay Doug Bradley!

    HELL YES! While the idea of a Hellraiser remake makes me cautious, I’m far more excited for The Scarlet Gospels. Here’s hoping that gets made into a movie as well!

    • Jinx

      If we absolutely MUST have a remake, I hope it winds up being the first of a Barker-penned trilogy that culminates in a film adaptation of Scarlet (perhaps co-starring Bakula as an older Harry D’Amour?).

  • theGoldenSimatar

    This is sauce most awesome.

  • LifeMi

    Goodbye to that pudgy, Norweigan wannabe and welcome back to the real Pinhead!! Very exciting news.
